Social media photos of John Lloyd Cruz without Ellen Adarna seem to be a rare occurrence these days.
But he seemed to break from that trend when he posted a picture of him and "Home Sweetie Home" co-star Miles Ocampo recently.
This follows an episode of the weekend sitcom, in which many used to speculate that his character is being written out for good.
In the strongest indication yet, Julie (Toni Gonzaga) opened up about wanting to have her marriage with Romeo (Cruz) annulled. This comes after receiving a series of messages from Romeo, leaving to her the fate of their relationship.
Cruz has been absent from the show since last year. The canon story is that Romeo is just working abroad, although things are getting complicated after Julie suspects he's cheating on her.
Ocampo plays Julie's teenage sister in the show.
She celebrated her birthday this past week, which is also one of the reasons fans forwarded on why Cruz posted a photo with her.
